So I finally did it. I bought an iMac.
Such an exciting moment ... bringing it home, setting it up, turning it on ... holy cow, what a beauty!!!
Then reality hit. I had no idea how to use it. Thank goodness for two teenage daughters who use strictly mac's at school! They've been my saving graces the last couple days as I try to figure out how to navigate around this monster.
However, there is one issue I cannot seem to fix. Photoshop. My little brain was so excited about getting the iMac that I never really took into account what I would need to edit my photos like I've been doing for the past few years. Of course my old Photoshop program is NOT going to work on Mac, though luckily (or so I thought) I have a free version of PSE 6 for mac. That should do it, right? Wrong. None of the actions I normally use will work, even though I'm installing them correctly.
So I go looking to buy PS. Okay, there's no way I have the $$$ for any of the latest versions of PS. Now I'm thinking PSE 10. Does anyone have any experience with PSE 10?? It's on sale today for 50% off ($50) so I need to make a decision.
I have to say I hate PSE 6 compared to regular PS but it looks like PSE is my only affordable option. Please someone, give me some thoughts. Or your experience. Something!
* Update: I purchases PSE 10 and so far it seems to be similar (though not as similar as I'd like) to my old PS program. I appreciate all the suggestions left for me! I've been trying to respond to each one individually.
